As Kazunori Yamauchi promised at the GT6 announcement event at Silverstone back in May, Gamescom, Cologne was going to be a pivotal milestone in the future of GT – Well, he definitely didn’t disappoint!

In celebrating 15 years of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital has announced a unique partnership with a number of leading automotive manufacturers, design houses and other leading global brands.

Their designs will then be recreated as working cars for GT6.

This opens up an entire new world of future automotive design as before you would just see and read about it online, but now you’ll actually be part of the experience firsthand in Gran Turismo 6.

Polyphony Digital will release the cars from 2013 to 2014 as gifted downloadable content (DLC) to owners of Gran Turismo 6 through online update.

Why after the launch of PS4 :( I think I may wait for the Gaikai service so I can play on the PS4.

God of War II was launched on PS2 when PS3 was in the market. Stop complaining.

I think they’re holding out news that it’s coming to PS4 as well. It just seems like a bad idea to release this only for PS3.

Hope we see a PS Vita entry sooner, rather than later.

“Customized Paint Chips” Are you freaking kidding me? This crap is still in the game? This game is already starting to look terrible.

Ugh… Why gamestop always gets the good bonuses. Freaking hate buying from gamestop. I guess I’ll just have to let it go.

Is there a Day 1 digital or a later digital version coming?

Sony, what about a digital version???

+ BadFlounder on August 20th, 2013 at 1:44 pm said:

I’m pretty confident the digital versions are difficult here because GT5, for example, took up almost an entire 50 GB dual-layer blu-ray disc. GT6 is the same game basically, at least at its core, so I really doubt it’s any smaller. I’d love a digital version too, but not if I have to download and install a 50 GB game.

What about the Beyond the Apex II app that was mentioned in the initial announcement? Please tell me that is still in at least one edition.

This comes out the same day as my birthday. I’ve already pre-ordered but maybe I can get it as a gift now. Also hopefully there will be a collectors edition.

@9 Yuranium

PreOrdering or buying new from Gamestop is not supporting Gamestop (which I also don’t like to do) so much as it’s supporting the gaming industry. The people who support Gamestop and not the industry are the ones who buy used games from them just to save $5 off retail. When they are giving you exra stuff for free on a game you were going to buy anyway, feel free to preorder from Gamestop guilt free. Gamestop has to pay for the preorder exclusives. They do it to get you in the door hoping you’ll spend exta money on some used games, a magazine subscription or something else they acctually make some profit on, because they only make a few bucks on new games. So going into Gamestop just to preorder and buy new is actually hurting Gamestop’s profit margain.

I used to support the used game market back in the EB Games days because it wasn’t all about greed. EB in those days gave you half of what they were going to sell it for, which is fair market value. And they also gave you that in cash, unlike Gamestop who only let you spend what little they offer you in their store. If you want cash fom gamestop it’s 30% less. It’s disgustingly greedy, and imo should be illegal.

Hmm, which is better? 15th Anniversary Edition Upgrade or $1 Million In-Game Credit? Decisions, decisions.

@ Darth-Krayt

Ehh… Gamestop doesn’t appeal to me either, but it’s not greed that’s behind their trade strategy. They adjust their numbers according to what the bottom line is showing them. Trying to survive in the industry. That’s really all it is. I agree that the value isn’t very good at all for gamers, but it doesn’t mean greed is driving the process. There’s a lot of variables… the market has changed drastically since the 90s, you know…

Besides, you always have choices…

Will there be any Collector’s Editions released like there were for GT5, and will they be readily available in all regions this time around?

+ MatheAdi on August 20th, 2013 at 9:09 pm said:

Who knew that Jordan and Nike designed cars! Well definitely glad the new Tesla models are included, but still no Porsche, which is a huge disappointment. But looking forward to it, anyways!

If only they’d fix that 15 year old third person perspective camera. It makes the action look jerky and unrealistic with the car not moving from the bottom center of the TV, just rocking left or right and the track rotating around it on turns. It’s hard to explain without seeing it, but anyone who’s seen the difference subtle movements of the car animation can make in games like Forza 4 will know what I’m talking about. If they’d fix this I’d be exited about this game. As is it’s just not fun to play (Try the demo to see what I mean.)

@20 SergioCosmopolis,

They don’t care about casual gamer complaints, because the hardcore gamers strictly use the cockpit view in racing games when available, along with a quality racing wheel.

That is where the most authentic experience for GT lies, whether you agree or not, and GT shines with that set-up.
